Urban / Pop
Talented and fresh-faced Krisha Gardner, born into a close-knit musical family of Jamaican origin, began to sing at the tender age of 3. Her immediate immersion in music was thanks to her father’s passion for R&B, Gospel, Dancehall and Pop, and her singing began when inspired by En Vogue’s “Hold On”.
A born entertainer, the young Krisha performed wherever she went to anybody who wanted to be entertained, and she soon began entering and winning talent shows with her energetic dancing.
Her more serious approach to music came at the age of 11, when touched by Mariah Carey’s cover of Harry Nilssons “Without You.” This song encouraged Krisha to begin writing her own songs and she soon penned her first, “Love, be mine.” From then everywhere Krisha went her music book went with her, drawing on the influences of artists such as Aretha Franklin, Mary J Blige and MC Hammer.
At 16 years old Krisha went to a Performing Arts College and began perfecting her acting, singing and dancing. Krisha was determining to learn everything to become the best performer she could be.
Throughout her college years, Krisha would watch only music channels, checking out new music, finding the latest dance moves, making sure she kept a close eye on the charts and trying to stay one step ahead.
Finishing college put a strain on Krisha singing, as she began taking on different jobs to make ends meet. Krisha however was determined not to push her dreams aside so she picked up her song book and booked herself into a studio to lay down some tracks and bring her scribbled songs to life.
At the age of 23 Krisha is living in London and feels ready to tell the world that she is here, and as she strives to make her mark on the industry, fuelled by passion and determination, she is ready to knock down anyone that wants to get in her way.
